We are happy to announce that we have released an update that addresses some of these points.
Channel Banned users will no longer be able to view the chat, and they will also be removed from your Chat list. There is an issue that has caused us to pause this temporarily, but we expect a fix to be out very soon – stay tuned to the Twitter thread below for the update.
Additionally, if you Block a user, they will not be able to subscribe or follow, and Blocking them will automatically unfollow them.https://twitter.com/TwitchSupport/status/1243643979897417730?s=20
I will leave this topic open for your points about being unable to fully view the remaining content of a channel, and account creation.
You have a lot of different suggestions here, the latter of which have not been implemented so I will leave the topic open, but I wanted to let the thread know that we have recently released the ability to remove followers from your list by Blocking them.
You can see how to Block a user here: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/how-to-manage-harassment-in-chat#BlockWhispersandMessagesfromStrangers
Additionally, you can see your channel Banned Chatters in your Moderation Preferences in the Dashboard

I honestly agree with this feature. I've been getting harassed on Twitch for almost a year now by a small community on Twitch which came from another streamer. I've even tried reporting it to Twitch and they kept turning me around to 24/7 Moderator Staff by click on the report button on the persons channel instead of me just reporting it through customer service. It's a disgrace!
I've even had proof to back it up and Twitch doesn't seem to care. Currently, I am on break from streaming and plan to return to a brand new account. Yes, I had to make a new account just to get a break from all this **** because it's effected my mental health. The worst part is I suffer from Asperger's Autism which makes it even more harder for me to want to come back to Twitch.
This feature needs to happen because there could be more people out there suffering a similar fate as I have. I want Twitch to finally help those people including myself. It breaks my heart honestly that a platform I've streamed on for 6-7 years doesn't seem to care about the safety and well-being of it's streamers and viewers.
